RA­BID AND ILL-IN­FORMED

Re: “Death Is­land Ap­peal”, (PostBag, Oct 13).

An Eastern Euro­pean was found dead float­ing in the sea in the mid­dle of the day off Sairee beach. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way. It’s likely he drowned. Hap­pens ev­ery day some­where in Thai­land, but be­cause it’s Koh Tao the tabloids re­port it and some let­ter writ­ers pile it on again. No one calls it “death is­land” out­side the tabloids, cer­tainly no one pays much at­ten­tion to the ra­bid, ill-in­formed com­ments made on the web­site. Tourists com­ing to Koh Tao gen­er­ally don’t worry about silly no­tions any­way or they stay in Koh Sa­mui or Bangkok where they may be shot by gun vi­o­lence eas­ily enough. Tim­sahb
